Overview

Through real-life stories about children, their families, and their teachers, and through the use of the most recent evidence-based research on special education, this important book provides a comprehensive introduction to special education and its relationship to general education. The seventh edition provides this experience within the framework of three guiding themes: Inclusion, Partnerships, and Universal Design for Progress.

Long noted for its focus on progress in general education through inclusion, families, and parent-professional partnerships, the new seventh edition of Exceptional Lives: Special Education in Today's Schools, now includes a “Universal Design for Progress” feature in every chapter which highlights a technology that can be used to meet the needs of students with disabilities. This text stands out from the crowd with its strong belief in the capacity of special educators, general educators, related service professionals, and families to collaborate with one another for inclusion, and that inclusion is not only possible but desirable.

    Book fine, service horrible

    Renting from B&N is a nightmare.
    Six telephone calls, three-plus hours on hold, late charges, an e-mail confirming that the book had been received and late charges reversed. A new e-mail saying they don't have the book, more late charges and telephone calls. "Customer service" (I use the term loosely) saying they can't confirm that a confirmation of receipt was sent. Plus they refused my offer to forward the confirmation of receipt e-mail back to them. I give up. I'm paying for the book because I can't keep doing this. It just isn't worth my time and energy any more. Will never, never, never rent from B&N again.

    This is a very expensive, cheaply made book. The paper is cheap, the cover is cheap. Most of the information can be found on the Internet. Additionally, you're supposed to be able to use an educational lab that is presented throughout the book to do on line exercises to complement the theory. However, you have to BUY that access code as a student from Pearson. There is something seriously wrong here. I really regret buying this book.
